This paper will focus on four inter-related areas which it is considered are indicative of emergent trends in the child welfare field, The areas to be discussed are advances in our understanding of child development; how these advances link to social policy issues; factors influencing the delivery of services and finally some training issues which arise from all of these items.

These issues are discussed with a hope to maintain both an historical and comparative perspective, in relation to alternative child welfare systems.
